SugarPea Designs - Sweet 2 Repeat May Blog Hop

May 18, 2018

I've got a busy day on the blog today! This is blog hop #1 for the day, and there will be another one at 7am. So, be sure to come back & check it out!

It’s time again for the SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop! Now that so many of you have our Spring Release in your hot little hands, our team has geared up to inspire you with even MORE creative possibilities featuring our newest and hottest products!

I was obsessed with the Postage Stamps die set during the last release, and combined it with the ParisScape & the Parisian Holiday stamp set for my card today! I "lifted" myself from a card I made during the Spring Release Week - but flipped it around, and heat embossed the sentiment. I love how it turned out!

To start I cut an A2 card from white cardstock, then set aside. Then I ink blended the background using oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet & Blueprint Sketch. Then I sprinkled water on it & picked it up with a paper towel. Finally I spritzed it with white shimmer spray & flicked gold paint splatters to it.

Next I diecut the heart from the center of the ink blended background, and also from white foam. Then I diecut the ParisScape from both black & grey cardstock as well.

Then I stamped & heat embossed the sentiment in white to the middle of the diecut heart. {Can I just mention how CUTE this sentiment is?! I love that it is punny & super sweet!} 

At this point it was time to start putting the card together. I layered the background to the card front with foam adhesive, then layered the hearts on top of it as well. Next I added to two ParisScape layers, popping the black layer up with foam dots. I painted over the top ParisScape layer with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to really give it some shimmer. To finish, I added my signature jewels tucked here & there!

Here is a peek at the items I used to create this card, minus basics like cardstock & tools. This card is a little heavier in product than normal, but that is mostly because I used so many inks! I absolutely purchase new items each month to freshen my products, but I do stick to a pretty strict budget. I like to invest in items that I will get a lot of use out of, and make sure that I am using like items already owned before I purchase anything similar.
